Welcome to Birch Class

What a busy first term we had in Birch Class! We had so much fun, learning about woodlands, bears, fairy tales and lots more besides. Have a look at the photos below to see some of the things we got up to.


Our new topic is...


Polar Explorers


We have had our Polar Explorer Day. On this day, we took part in lots of different activities to help us learn what it might be like to be a polar explorer. We tested different kinds of gloves to see which material is best for keeping us warm and dry. We also built our own shelters and kept warm inside drinking hot chocolate. We learnt all about different kinds of animals and thought about why polar animals are well suited to their habitat. In P.E. we took part in 'Polar Yoga', practising different balances and poses. Finally we prepared some polar explorer food and looked at how the ingredients changed as they were heated.
